Swimming: At the recent Angus Inter-Club Swimming Gala held in Montrose, Brechin Beavers did extremely well, coming in second overall. St. Thomas, Arbroath, were first, Brechin second, Montrose third and Forfar fourth. This was a very close, exciting competition for Brechin as they beat their nearest rival Montrose by four points.

Football: Friockheim 2; Brechin Harp 9.
This match was Harp’s first after a three week lay off, and although the pitch was in perfect condition, the weather could not have been colder and it is to their credit that both teams served up some good football. The Brechin boys were always stronger on the ball and the longer the game went the better they played.
